SCULPTURE

SCULPTURE

SERVING ST GEORGE-WASHINGTON-HURRICANE-SANTA CLARA UT

Sculpture is the oldest, and perhaps, the most endearing form of arts known to humanity. It’s also a form that is constantly changing, particularly during the last century. While sculpting was an art form that used stone for centuries, it now encompasses a variety of mediums such as various metals, clay and commercially made sculpting materials that make learning both practical and fun.

Children are particularly drawn to sculpting because it gives them the opportunity to expand their imaginations through inexpensive molding materials. Jackie shows your children how to combine common materials to create unique, three-dimensional works of art.

No matter what sculpting medium is used, the principles of sculptural design are the same. These are orientation, proportion, scale, articulation and balance. Orientation creates a sense of harmony, or the opposite, in the sculpture itself or in its relationship to the viewer and/or its surroundings. Proportion involves lines, area, volume and mass, all of which coexist in every sculptural design and contribute to its beauty. Articulation refers to the formal presentation of the work. Highly articulated designs have a defined place for every element. Scale refers to the size of the sculpture in relation to its surroundings. Balance is the ordered relationship of parts that can be symmetrical or asymmetrical. Students at Gentry Music & Arts will learn these elements in a way that is appropriate to their age and skill level.
